Bird Watch Bonanza!
Flap, fly, and soar your way up to the Oak Savanna with a Quarry Hill naturalist! We’re calling all adventurers, ages 4 -7, and their adult sidekick to flock together for this flying wild birding experience. On this 90 minute adventure, naturalists will teach you birding basics like how to use binoculars (that you get to keep!), introduce you to a live raptor and lead you in discovering the wonderful world of birds.
The adventure continues at home. With your new Bird Watch book as your guide, you can explore all summer long! Earn Bird Watch stickers, as you put your new found skills and bird watching tools to work. Each adventurer will go home with their own Quarry Hill Bird Watch tote which includes a copy of the interactive book "Backpack Explorer: Bird Watch," binoculars, backyard birds ID sheet, feather quill and a tweet treat for the birds in your own backyard. This is an active outdoor experience where all activities are geared toward the abilities and interests of children ages 4-7.
